Another Country Opens New Sound Suite for Mixer Peter Erazmus


Chicago-based Another Country announced that it has opened a new mixing suite, Studio 5, which will serve as the home of mixer Peter Erazmus who joined the company this spring.

According to company founder John Binder, the design of Sound 5 is based on of the first room he built at Another Country 23 years ago, with substantial additional input from Erazmus. “Our acoustician is Carl Yanchar of Yanchar Design & Consulting Group,” Binder said. “His attention to detail is impeccable, so much so that we have used him exclusively for all of our studios.”

“Another Country is by far the best facility of its kind in Chicago,” said Yanchar. “John Binder and his staff demand and do whatever is necessary to provide the very best environment for their clients, both technically and creatively.”

The primary goal was to give Erazmus a fully equipped, modern, comfortable studio with access to the shared server platform containing archives of every job the company has worked on over the past 15 years.

“By tying into our main machine room, Sound 5 also provides access to any of our five vocal booths or multiple booths at once, as well as ISDN or any combination thereof,” said Erazmus. “Using digital runs for both microphone, ISDN and headphone signals offers the cleanest path, keeps the noise floor low and essentially eliminates RF.”

Sound 5 features the Pro Tools HDX2 system running the latest version 11 software; 64 channels of HD I/O; full Genelec 5.1 / 7.1 and stereo nearfield monitoring systems professionally tuned to the room; D-Command controller with Another Country-specific custom designed templates; the latest plugins for dynamics, EQ, loudness measurement, sound design and instrumentation; a full suite of noise reduction and restoration tools; ISDN and source connect remote record interfaces; digital hybrid phone patch, and Skype connectivity.

Erazmus has been busy mixing a variety of commercial projects. His most recent credits include a series of ads for Courtyard Hotels via mcgarrybowen, and for McDonald’s via Leo Burnett. “I feel incredibly fortunate to call this new space home,” he said. “This room is a result of Another Country’s longstanding dedication to quality. Offering the absolute highest quality and versatility, Sound 5 is production-focused, yet stylish and comfortable.”
